Wind Symphony and Symphonic Band students
2017 Fall sectionals will begin the week of September 11th.
All band sectionals will begin promptly at 7:15 a.m. or 3:45 p.m. Please be on time, in your seat with instrument, all music, and pencil.
You will need to enter the building from the south side doors for morning sectionals.
Sectionals are a graded part of your Band class. Many playing tests will be taken during this time as well. If you are absent from school (for more than periods 1-2) on a sectional day you will be excused from your sectional, or will be allowed to make up your sectional. Please see your director to make arrangements within two days of your absence. It is YOUR responsibility to seek out a make-up time/assignment. As your director!
We will do our best not to change your sectional day. Please take this into consideration when you schedule doctor / dentist /orthodontist appointments. Sectionals will conclude at 8 am so that students may attend morning tutorials if they wish to do so. If you are going to tutorials you will need to make sure you move quickly at the conclusion of sectionals to ensure you get into the academic wing before the doors close at 8:05. After school times will be used for make-up and extra work if necessary. Afternoon sectionals will conclude at 4:30 p.m.
Athletes, it is your responsibility to communicate your sectional time/day with your coaches. I have communicated our sectional policies with them and this is considered to be an excused absence from practice, but YOU need to make sure the coaches know where you are.
* Wind Symphony Sectionals may change as we get closer to UIL in April. Would probably change to ALL WOODWINDS on Tuesday, ALL BRASS on Friday. Percussion will most likely remain on Thursday.
